of people informed. we greatly appreciate it. that's more for us. more on superstorm sandy all night on cnn. >>> hello, welcome to cnn's special coverage of the super storm sandy. we want to welcome our international viewers as well from around the world. it's 1:00 in the morning east coast time here in atlanta and we have reporters up and down the east coast bringing us the latest developments all hour long. really into the night. no hype, overestimates or anything on this one. damage estimates are in the billions. sandy is big. sandy is powerful and she is a killer. already at least 12 people have been reported dead in the u.s. five alone in new york. 5.3 million people are without power. 23 states are under wind advisories. damage from the wind alone could top $3 million. and sandy is already response iblg f67 deaths in caribbeans. >> roads flooded out. the water rising above the cars in some locals. this historic superstorm made landfall over the most populated areas of the u.s. wind damage, power outages, storm surges, inland flooding, you name it, even snowstorms are threatening the l
americans were dead, including u.s. ambassador christopher stevens, top white house officials were in frequent contact with senior intelligence officials, multiple conversations and possibly we're told tonight at least one secure video conference involving the cia director, david petraeus, the white house national security advisor and perhaps the secretary of state, hillary clinton. now, we don't know yet what was said or whether those discussions covered raw intelligence from libya pointing to terrorist involvement. we have been reporting such early indications existed, and tonight, the associated press says some of it was coming from the cia station chief on the ground. whether or how it was distributed, we just don't know yet. late today, though, mike rogers, the republican chairman of the house intelligence committee, had this to say to cnn's wolf blitzer. >> i want to say we, the committee, were in possession of information that provided by the intelligence community that pretty much said this was a military style attack within less than 24 hours. >> are you sure -- >> presuma
. the gig is up, mr. armstrong. you cheated us all. shame on you. that's all for us tonight. "ac 360" starts new. >>> we begin with mitt romney keeping him honest, something he said at the debate, something that's silly but might have serious consequences for the campaign because it involves that key voting bloc, which is women. you may already know what we're talking about. even if you didn't watch the debate last night, you're probably familiar with the phrase "binders full of women", a full-fledged internet phenomenon. 140 million hits and counting on google. it's one of the hot twitter hash tags, binders with cute photos, binders of unicorns, sharp tongues, hillary clinton, and, you name it. when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro, it seems. the binders of women craze began minutes, literally, just minutes after mitt romney uttered those words responding to a question about equal pay for women. mr. romney point to his hiring process when he first became governor of massachusetts. listen. >> i said, gosh, can't we find some women that are also qualified? so we took a concerted effor
presidents spent for theirs. the president's retails for $15,600 and mitt romney got back to us and town and country they say, you are wrong. his $3,000 tag is a $300 nixon watch and we heard back from the president's team he said he had a watch from the secret service which was a gift. but he owns another watch which is a tag but we will be watching. anderson cooper 360 starts now. >> good evening. we begin tonight with a mother who is asking the toughest question a mother can. why is my son dead? that is all pat smith wants to know. her son, sean smith one of the americans killed in the attack in benghazi on september 11th. a month after, she watched her son's casket come off a cargo plane, a month after she says promised her answers, she says she is still waiting to hear. still waiting for answers. waiting for a call. congress held hearings today. we'll talk about that shortly, but first, my conversation with sean smith's mom, pat. i appreciate you being with us. i'm so sorry for your loss. what do you want people tonow about sean? >> so god. he was my only child. he was good
and founder of the sound bite institute. jim, you cover governor romney. a lot of us that have heard president obama's humor before. he uses it often. governor romney's not so much. got some good lines in there. do you think tonight would help him with likability numbers? do they look at it like this? >> i think so. i think the headlines tomorrow, might be governor romney, what about your laughs? because he was pretty funny tonight. he had some good zingers. i talked to a senior romney adviser who said in addition to doing debate prep, he was working on his material for tonight. and he clearly brought his "a" game. anderson, this is a window into mitt romney. he's a hyper competitive individual. he had to know that the president, because he was so well received, because this president does pretty well at white house correspondent dinners, that he needed to bring some good material tonight and he did just that. >> president obama approached the night a little differently. jessica, out to you. >> well, he's -- you know, he uses self-deprecating humor as one of his not-secret weapons. he's good a
time to be completed. that will tell us with certainty what transpired, but our current best assessment based on the information that we have at present is that in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated response to what had transpired in cairo. in cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated. >> the spontaneous, not premeditated is the important part. that was four days after raw intelligence was available contradicting that. three days after the intelligence community may have apprised both lawmakers and the white house that such intelligence, preliminary though it may have been, in fact existed. so why then did susan rice say that? an intelligence official tells us she was working off a set of cia talking points. several senior administration officials tell us ambassador rice's use of the word spontaneous came directly from an assessment coming from congress and was not edited by the white house. but keeping them honest the white house had been in frequent
you help us find folks? they brought us binders full of women. >> that's somewhat silly phrase. here's the totally serious context and why it's important to break it down. women may decide this election as you probably know. president obama's formerly big advantage appears to be gone. the polling shows a bigger gender gap in president obama's favor. whatever size of it actually is, mitt romney can successful narrow that gap, that would make the president's road to re-election very, very difficult, nearly impossible. campaigning in virginia, romney said the president has failed america's women. he was touting his own record claiming he went to a number of women's groups and said can you help us find folks? keeping them honest, that's not quite true. there's a problem with the time line. the group in question, the massachusetts govern appointments project, mass gap, actually approached him. they put out a statement today saying, i quote, prior to the 2002 gubernatorial election, mass gap approached the campaigns of candidates shannon o'brien and mitt romney. they went to him and his de
whether they can use contraceptives or not and i don't believe employers should tell someone whether they should have contraceptives or not. >> he strongly supported federal legislation to restrict access to birth control and restated that when it briefly came into question. >> jim heath, a reporter for a tv station in ohio just tweeted that mitt romney told him, he does not not support the blent amendment that would empower insurers to deny health coverage they find morally objectionable. >> i didn't understand his question. of course i support the blunt amendment. >> that was back in february when he was battling for the blunt amendment. it failed but as late as august, he was still pushing the idea behind it, allowing companies to restrict insurance coverage for birth control for certain reasons. tuesday night, apparently, he did a 180. when asked yesterday whether he did flip-flop, he said, not in any way. she went on to call the issue not really the point to most women out there. as we showed you, though, the polling suggests that it is, if you believe this poll, which may be wh
armstrong. the game is up, mr. armstrong, the race is over. you cheated us all. shame on you. that's all for us tonight. "ac 360" starts now. >>> a lot to talk about tonight. we begin keeping them honest with mitt romney's record on women. we begin with mitt romney something that has turned silly but might have serious consequences for the campaign. because it involved a key voting bloc, which is women. you are probably familiar right now with the phrase of binders full of women. it is a full-fledged internet phenomenon. 140 million hits, including on goog. binders full of women is one of the hot twitter hash tags now. loaded with photos, binders of photos, hillary clinton, you name it. when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro, it seems. mr. romney pointed to his hiring process when he first became governor of massachusetts. listen. >> i said, gosh, can't we find some women that are also qualified? and so we took a concerted effort to go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet. i went to a number of women's group and said can y
effort to find women who had backgrounds to find women. they brought us whole binders full of women. >> that is a somewhat silly phrase. here is the totally serious context and why it's important to break it down. women may decide this election. look at this. president obama's formerly big advantage with female voters answers to be gone. whatever the size of it actually is, mitt romney can successfully narrow that gap, that would make the president's road to re-election very, very difficult. mr. romney said the president has failed american women and he claimed that "he went to a number of women groups and said can you help us find folks?" there's a problem with the timeline. we want to look at that tonight. the group in albuquerque a nonpartisan outfit, actually approached him, they put out a statement, and i quote "prior to the 2002 gubernatorial election, massgap approached the campaigns of shannon o'brien and mitt romney. they went to him and his democratic opponent as well. not as he claimed the other way around. mr. romney credited the recruiting effort that followed with help
for the election. the best part is the wine. even mitt romney will try them. thank you for joining us. >> thank you very much. we begin tonight with breaking news you will only see it here. new details about a man in custody who we are learning is the key suspect in the attack in benghazi in libya. we know who he is, where he is, who has him and whether american inter gators were able to get at him. along with former cia officer and you will hear from senator john mccain. but i want to start with, intelligence correspondent laurla suzanne kelly. >> the fbi is expected to take the lead on this investigation. >> so, it is not clear. fbi will take the lead on interviews and cia. others will be there? >> that is what was expected. you understand what this looks like with law enforcement. but we are told that right now the fbi is told to take the lead. they would be able to uphold in court but that the intelligence agency agencies know. >> so, his name is ali alhazri. we know that he was posting details of the attack as it was happening on his social media websites. we know that officials detained him a
% want the welfare state. what that tells us is that at least half those people currently in that category are there not of their wish or their will. >> now liberal websites are focusing on the ryan speech. conservatives are focusing on the obama speech. the "huffington post" ryan reaction was, only 30% want the well stare state just as it is every day on the campaign trail, was one of upward mobility and opportunity for all americans. whether this amounts to anything, joining me is political analyst rowlan martin and eric, let me start with you on this obama tape. to you, what's the significance of it? >> i think the significance of it was the media that portrayed barack obama as a post-racial president. it was not the obama campaign. the media for a long time portrayed barack obama as above the old political rhetoric both sides did. here's barack obama telling a black crowd that basically they are part of the american community. he said florida was with hurricane andrew and with hurricane katrina it wasn't. the facts were not true. hurricane katrina got $110 billion to t

're giving you plenty of warning to go out and save america from the fiscal cliff. thanks for joining us. have a great night. see you back here same time tomorrow. "ac 360" starts right now. >>> tonight, a story you will not see anywhere else. for the first time, cnn's arwa damon talks about what she experienced when she first set foot inside the american compound in benghazi. what the terrible scene was like after the deadly assault that killed four americans. evidence she saw that might have been useful to investigators. that is, had investigators ever had a chance to stand where she stood. indications perhaps that might help locate the culprits. keeping them honest, nearly everyone and anyone has now been able to gain access to the crime scene, except, that is, for fbi agents and now for them, it's no longer worth taking the risk to going to benghazi. but there is at least some indication tonight that enough is known about who did this to begin planning some kind of response. a senior american official telling us that the pentagon and intelligence community have begun preparing so-cal
's news should give us some encouragement. it shouldn't be an excuse for the other side to try to talk down the economy just to try to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> president obama on the campaign trail today. now here's what mitt romney said. >> the unemployment rate, as you noted this year, has come down very, very slowly, but it's come down nonetheless. the reason it's come down this year is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> he went on to say the country can do better, which is about what you would expect him to say, same as you would expect president obama to say what he said. that's the way the two sides do it, year in, year out, campaign after campaign. what no one does, at least until now, is look at the numbers and suggest the fix is in. this morning jack welch did tweet, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate to change numbers. i think he presumably means the obama campaign. and conservative commentator laura ing

"ac 360" starts now. >>> good evening, everyone. with just two weeks to go until the presidential race is now laser focused on a handful of battleground states and undecided voters. it's too early to tell whether last night's debate moved the needle for either campaign but we do know both men kept the fact checkers busy all night and through today, even tonight. for governor romney's part he surprised a lot of the estimated 59 million people who watched the debate by spending a lot of the night agreeing with president obama. >> with regards to iraq, you and i agreed, i believe, that there should have been a status of forces agreement and i concurred in that and said we should have some number of troops. that was something i concurred with. >> i believe as the president indicated, and said at the time, that i supported his action there. >> i want to underscore the same point the president made. >> i couldn't agree more about going forward but i certainly don't want to go back to the polici

's quiet riots are real. >> quiet riot is a phrase he used in this very speech. >> no, no. i was referencing the speech he gave to the hampton minister's conference. here is the deal. talk about the amount of money spent on the gulf coast. alabama, mississippi, okay? is this going to have any impact on this election? absolutely not. this is nothing more than sean hahnity's infan situation with reverend jeremiah wright, pure and simple. >> is there a significance to this you believe? >> i think that there is no material significance here, but the republicans are very good at taking nothing and turning it into what appears to be something. we have to remember that we live in a country that has for 400 years poisoned by the psychological disease of racism and it doesn't take much to spark that back up. look at what president obama is saying you wouldn't hear white politicians saying what he said, because african-americans have a unique history in this country. we have a history of documented discrimination, that is -- effectively undeniable. look at what happened with katrina an
